  1. What did you do to your Type R today?

    Mine were the clear ones and no, they were ultra bright/ Loved them I ended up going with OEM JDM clear side markers instead.
  2. NEW CTR - Dirt under the Clear Coat?

    As others have stated... ask for a discount... or ask for a comparable cost accessory that you would not have gotten. (Trunk Tray, OEM Door Visors... or something)
  3. Suzuka LE lap record

    Probably certain guages and monitoring systems they installed to monitor conditions.
  4. What did you do to your Type R today?

    How is the stopping power? Legit the stocks stopping power is INSANE Best pads I've ever had (First set of Brembos I have had for that matter...)
  5. What did you do to your Type R today?

    Keep me posted. My LED side markers from them had terrible moisture enter in through the casing seal (NOT where the light socket seated in) I got a refund from them completely. They sent me a new side marker too :/
  6. FS: Brembo Calipers FK8 Brand New Unused

    I would also need to paint the rear calipers or it would look super odd.
  7. [FIXED] Paranoid about Engine Knock/Tune/Damage

    No worries I also have engine "tapping" around 2000-2500 rpm. It's just a heat shield. (at least for me) All transmissions shift. CVT or MT. It will create some knock. just make sure your tune/basemap isn't too agressive.
  8. [FIXED] Paranoid about Engine Knock/Tune/Damage

    You have a super long post..... So I will keep it simple. Our engines vibrate, they cause various components to vibrate, and no car is the same. My First R had no Vibrations, My second does. It is what it is. Knock Control is an electronic sensor that detects a knock. Anything your tires hit...
  9. K20C1 Modding & Tuning Megathread: A list of every FK8 Type R aftermarket part and what to expect

    I cannot imagine it being much different in other climates... Realistically the Hondata Fuel Pump only adds 25% more capacity. The E40 did allow them to break 400 HP though with a stock Turbo... so there is that. It seems that adding Meth has been a better option for Power and Torque...
  10. Turning AC off when driving hard ?

    ehhhhhhhh One can over heat the car on the street pretty easily here in South Florida lol...
  11. Turning AC off when driving hard ?

    SO get this.... Everytime I do a hard pull with the AC turned on, the next time I need to turn the AC "on" in the climate menu. So I BELIEVE it actually does shut off the AC. However, the blower is still running so maybe that is what robs power.
  12. K20C1 Modding & Tuning Megathread: A list of every FK8 Type R aftermarket part and what to expect

    I know people with the Hondata Fuel Pump down here in Miami and they cannot go above E40. It still runs out of fuel.
  13. Question about Carfax & Insurance - what would you do?

    I would wager this is a comprehensive claim that will not show on your CarFax. I cannot say for certain though. Edit: I had a total loss on my last Type R. It was flooded (No fault of my own) I woke up and it was half way under water. This happened on December 23rd of last year. My rates...
  14. K20C1 Modding & Tuning Megathread: A list of every FK8 Type R aftermarket part and what to expect

    I have heard of many people making the same power with an E30 blend, as those running 93 octane and even with the Hondata Fuel Pump they can still really only run E40. I will say that E85 is more consistent, but our cars cannot run straight E85, even with the Hondata Upgrade. Or am I missing...
  15. K20C1 Modding & Tuning Megathread: A list of every FK8 Type R aftermarket part and what to expect

    I am pretty sure without the Hondata Fuel Pump, we shouldn't be running any E in our cars just because we get the same results with 93 octane. Perhaps his boost is so low because of his IAT temps?
  16. FS: Brembo Calipers FK8 Brand New Unused

    I wonder how these would look on my Blue CTR with Bronze Wheels...
  17. K20C1 Modding & Tuning Megathread: A list of every FK8 Type R aftermarket part and what to expect

    To give you an idea, my off the shelf Hondata Basemap had me at 345/309 HP on my first pull on a Dynojet. My Tuner did a few modifications and I was at 373/409 the very next pull. 409 torque is too aggressive without proper fueling from I am starting to see so we turned it down. We settled at...
  18. K20C1 Modding & Tuning Megathread: A list of every FK8 Type R aftermarket part and what to expect

    Yeah. Every dyno does read differently. I’m starting to get the baseline runs more and more. That looks like a Mustang Dyno and they seem to always read lower than a DynoJet. But it is what it is. As long as you gained power and you’re happy! That’s all that matters.
  19. K20C1 Modding & Tuning Megathread: A list of every FK8 Type R aftermarket part and what to expect

    Uhhhh something doesn’t seem right.... you’re FBO and only 335hp? What kind of dyno did you use?
